Secretary's Statement - March  2022

The Brynmawr Historical Society has at last restarted; in fact our first lecture after lockdown was back in September 2021. We had a wonderful annual lunch at the Hall Inn in Gwehelog in October and after the December meeting we enjoyed our annual buffet and many thanks to Amieoccasions.

In January we started afresh with two talks by members of the society, before getting back into the usual monthly lectures. If you haven’t yet rejoined or joining for the first time then just a reminder that our annual membership is still only £6 per person for the year and still free to those in full time education. We have already started thinking of day visits; our first will be in June to the Nantgarw China Museum which is near Pontypridd and this will be a day visit and includes lunch. There is also a planned visit to the Brunel experience at Bristol and of course a full year of entertaining lectures.

Your friendly neighbourhood secretary.
